OWINGS MILLS, Md. - Receiver Jeremy Maclin has signed a two-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens, who spent much of the offseason looking for a deep threat.
After being cut by Kansas City earlier this month, Maclin last week visited LeSean McCoy and Buffalo before heading to Baltimore. He chose the Ravens, who announced the signing on Monday.
According to ESPN's Josina Anderson, the Eagles were a finalist for Maclin's services.

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson had said last week the team, at the moment, wasn't interested in bringing back Maclin.
Maclin fulfills the Ravens' quest to provide another downfield target for quarterback Joe Flacco. Mike Wallace returns, but Steve Smith won't be coming back after announcing his retirement.
Maclin broke into the NFL with the Eagles and spent the last two years with Kansas City. A Pro Bowler in 2014, Maclin had 44 catches last year despite missing four games with a groin injury.
His 87 receptions in 2015 are a career high and set the Chiefs' single-season record by a wide receiver.
Maclin, who can return punts, has 46 career TDs.
